WordPress Upgrade – January 2015

The University’s WordPress network will be upgraded on Friday January 16, 2015 between 10:00am and 12:00pm. Most websites will be affected for a minute or two at most.

Once the upgrades are completed, you will notice a few minor changes in your WordPress admin panel. Here’s a summary:

  • For those using the Department theme, the Appearance–>Header screen is now part of the Customizer tool. The header options remain the same – you’ll be able to see your previously uploaded headers with the option to “randomize” them. The default header image will be shown under “Suggested” if you need it.
  • If you work on multiple devices, you can now make sure you’re logged out everywhere – just go to Users–>Your Profile and click the “Log Out of All Other Sessions” button.
  • Enable distraction-free writing in the post or page editor by clicking the Post Editor Distraction Free icon icon in the toolbar. Toggle the icon to exit distraction-free mode.
